In the opening chapters I have tried to explain the development of Phillips' outlook. Then, I have endeavored to establish by analysis of every novel that he published just what is ephemeral and what is permanent in his work. The opinions of all important judges of the books, as well as the decision of many insignificant critics who reflect contemporary literary appetites, have been examined and balanced by each other. Sketches of the background against which Phillips struggled, the material and moral forces and cries of his age, are given with necessary details.
